So you get invited back for another game. "Level 3" (and I just got your
book from the library this morning, Richard, and look forward to reading
it) doesn't mean making yourself impotent. It is rational (however you
wish to define it) to play by the rules enough to enable you to
communicate/inspire/relate to others while at the same time realizing that
your own self-imposed rules are up for grabs.
